Back to weaving

It's been a long time.. But I have been busy playing on my looms. This one is almost done





  1. Hi- I just started continuous strand weaving also and am attempting to wet finish my piece. There is SO little available on the subject. How do you set your piece to hold the weave when is it a bit more open of a weave, as your blue square piece is? thanks so much for any tips!

  2. I wash the piece in warm soapy water and because it is wool.. It just wants to stay together. I have done cotton and while it moves more than still holds well. With wool you can full it more and get a heavier piece of cloth but then it won't move at all. Just agitate it careful or your piece will felt..lHave fun!

Finally finishing my shawl

I must confess I have had this shawl on my Triloom for some time... Now I am in the home from of finishing. I am trying to decide on a yarn for the border. I saw my Triloom teacher today. She does incredible stuff with a Triloom...I would love to be as talented as she is.    

Weaving For Relaxation

With all of the nasty viruses going around, weaving can be a great source of relaxation.  Whether you are doing rigid heddle weaving, continuous strand weaving or floor loom weaving.   It is a great way to express yourself and escape. Our craft can join and connect people in a common interest.   The sense of community that comes from sharing weaving can bridge a great many differences .Working with ones hands can bring great joy.    The joy and community are also elements of life that promote health.   I try to spend some time every day on my craft.   Sometimes it is weaving, sometimes it is spinning yarn and most recently I am learning to sew. (Oh the ideas for the fabric)
